  1. Transition Metal Oxide Optical Switch

    SBC: 4WAVE, INC.            Topic: A09079

    We propose to test a new sputtering method, Biased Target Deposition (BTD), for growth of polycrystalline VO2 thin films. The BTD method has been shown to be more stable and flexible for reactive deposition than previously used techniques, and we test whether VO2 can be driven into different microstructures, hence properties, by varying growth conditions. We focus on the optically-driven insulator ...

  2. Tunnel Detection using MASINT Techniques

    SBC: McQ Inc.            Topic: A09148

    McQ will build upon its extensive experience with MASINT unattended ground sensors and electronics systems to develop a portable sensor system that will detect, classify and provide location information for buried tunnels. We will first demonstrate the technical feasibility of using MASINT techniques to exploit both the signals associated with tunnel detection and the physics of propagation to det ...

  4. Automated Scene Understanding

    SBC: ObjectVideo            Topic: OSD09SP3

    Automatic visual content extraction and scene understanding is an enabling technology for video surveillance, situational awareness, and force protection applications. High-level scene comprehension requires a deep understanding of objects, scene elements and their inter-relations. Current systems lack a general visual knowledge framework and efficient computational algorithms for detecting large ...

  6. Automated Scene Understanding: Recognizing Function from Form and Motion

    SBC: SET ASSOC. CORP.            Topic: OSD09SP3

    Recognition of objects and their relationships is a critical part of automatic scene understanding. Scene understanding based on object appearance alone is not sufficient as the functions of a facility change over time, especially in areas of ongoing conflicts. However, almost all surveillance imagery contains vehicular and human activities. By monitoring the activities of vehicles and dismounts, ...

  7. Wide Temperature, High Energy Density Capacitors for Power System Conditioning

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: OSD09EP4

    Advanced electronics and weapons systems in current and future US military systems are placing ever increasing demands on the electric power systems that drive these electronics. These power systems require operation at higher power loads, in more compact designs, and at a reduced weight. Improved wide-temperature capacitors are a key part of the new generation of power systems, as the currently ...

  9. Metadata Databases


    Technology to aid in the understanding of intelligence data has not kept pace with the technology used to generate and store the data. This imbalance has led to a situation where the time required for an analyst to understand the content of a data set and mine the relevant information far exceeds the time available to the mission they support. The root of the problem is a mismatch between the me ...

  10. Novel Materials and Designs for Low Cost, High Per

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: A09068

    The use of conformal and embedded antennas can significantly reduce the visibility of communications antennas and improve aerodynamic performance for a number of ground and airborne platforms including Humvees, Mine Resistance Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles, and Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAVs). Despite these advantages, the largest limitation for conventional conformal and embedded antennas is the ...
